Video: A weekend trip to Scotland, watching Glasgow Celtic putting on a show

Liam Kelly flew up from Gatwick to Glasgow last weekend to attend the Celtic v St Johnstone match at Celtic Park and to meet up with some of the Irish supporters who had also travelled over, and enjoyed watching Glasgow Celtic putting in a show.

In what was probably Celtic’s best performance of the season St Johnstone were simply blown away by the Ange-ball style of football and a squad that really does pile on the agony from the starting eleven the opposition’s pain and suffering doesn’t ease in the slightest as Ange Postecoglou makes his substitutions, like giving Tom Rogic and Matt Riley 45 minutes each and bringing on our talisman Kyogo who got the best ever welcome back greeting for from the Celtic support.

After the game you”ll here from the likes of the twelfth Lion John Fallon who has a few observations about goalkeeping in the modern era, if you are Fraser Forster look away now!

Liam, like thousands of other Celtic supporters come from far and wide to get themselves to Paradise and they are an absolute credit to our club.  The Celtic culture around the game is all covered here but the highlight for each and every one of these supporters making their way to Glasgow is always watching Glasgow Celtic and what a show it was they put on!

Here’s last weekend through the eyes of Liam Kelly…and remember many of these Celtic supporters from far and wide will be making the journey back to Glasgow this weekend and will be at Hampden on Sunday to cheer on the Bhoys in the SCOTTISH CUP semi-final against Old Firm FC…

Enjoy the video…

    seeing ,and hearing the oratory of, the original ‘Holy Goalie’ , John Fallon, took me back in time to St Edwards’ (Airdrie) garden fete to help raise funds for the new chapel. to set the scene, it was a gloriously sunny day in the year of 1968 when my parents took me and the rest of the family down to St Edward’s primary school and ,of course, we were all buzzing with excitement and expectation of another great day out at the annual bash (they really WERE wonderful occasions with a gala atmosphere and genuine camaraderie).big TG was the guest of honour who was invited along to formally open proceedings and, in typical ‘Big Tam’ fashion, didn’t disappoint quipping ”sorry i’m a bit late, but i was held up by the Orange Walk” ! great craic altogether.after donating a signed shirt for raffle the big man departed to rapturous applause.great ,great, to take centre stage was JF who,bedecked in full goalie garb,stayed for FOUR HOURS stopping (or otherwise!) penalty kicks whereby you paid 10p and collected 50p if you scored! marvellous and selfless men who were great ,AND humble, ambassadors for our great club.happy,happy times.yours in Celtic.
